Correct Answer: C
Solution :[c] In 1914, Besant decided to enlarge the sphere of her activities to include the building of a movement for Home Rule on the line of the Irish Home Rule League. But the annual Congress session in December 1914 was to prove a disappointment ? Pheroze shah Mehta and his Bombay Moderates group succeeded, by winning over Gokhale and the Bengal Moderates, in keeping out the Extremists. Tilak and Besant thereupon decided to revive political activities on their own, while maintaining their pressure on the Congress to re-admit the Extremist group. In early 1915, Annie Besant launched a campaign through her two papers, New India and Commonwealth, and organized public meetings and conferences to demand that India be grant self-government on the lines of the White colonies after the War. In 1916, Tilak setup the Home Rule League at the Bombay Provincial Conference. Annie Besant's impatient followers, unhappy with her decision to wait and secured her permission to start Home Rule group. Jamnadas Dwarkadas, Shankarlal Banker and Indulal Yagnik setup a Bombay paper Young India and launched an All India Propaganda Fund to publish pamphlets in regional languages and in English. In September 1916, as there were no signs of any Congress activity, Annie Besant announced the formation of Home Rule League, with George Arundale, her Theosophical follower, as the Organizing Secretary.
